pronounced >> how many people were in san francisco in 89? anyone in the marina in 89? >> if you were in the main portion, the ground excelleration was 90 percent. if you way 100 pounds, the pound moved with 9 pounds. if the hay ward fault goes off, most of san francisco will feel 20 to 25 percent, the marina which will shake 30 percent. so if the hay ward fault goes off, san francisco will shake 3 or 4 times harder than in 89 and twice as long. >> the haward fault has return cycles plus or minus 10 for the last 140 years. the last was 1868. we are 140 years since the last haward fault went off. so, i would say, it's pretty likely it won't slip within the next 10 years. that will give you ground shakesing 3 to 4 times as last time. >> we have, pat and i and i couple of other people have run a program how to prepare in your life and home with problems related to an earthquake. that's not what our discussion is today. it's more of a global policy issues. one is proximity to the fault. how certain are geo technical engineering that the actual proximity of the fault is in fact going to affec

the marina calhalla neighborhood since i was 6 years old and my family has always had pets. i'm a private person that shops at pet food express. i also shop at a lot of buteex. i would like the option for pet food express to come to the neighborhood. i don't know if they have a dog wash and if they did, i would wash my dog there. that's something nobody offers except wags. i don't see incompatibility between pet foods and boutiques. i recently spent $50 at a beautiful hand-made leash on union street. i bought a gorgeous dog bed at another boutique. i buy most of my dog food at b&b pets. i drive to a lot of these places to shop there so it's not a neighborhood issue for me, but a question of variety and choice in this economy, if pet food express is offering lower prices, i think that's a value to your constituents. but as far as the price matching and predatory pricing is concerned, i know that's theoretically an option, if i walk into a pet food express and say, b&b pets offers this cheaper but it's difficult to go to a store, find out what they charge, then go to pet food expres

mission where it is always 55 degrees even when it 20 in the marina, we can bring tables and chairs out because we have a wider sidewalk and folks in the mayor's office said we will be happy to support that because there is plenty of room for seniors to walk by and we can add more bike racks to encourage people to get on the road with alternative transportation. to allow somebody to walk through a street and see a butterfly because there are beautiful trees and there is something else happening in terms of urban environment. we put all of that in this plan, which finally got down called the better streets plan and this will anchor the future of this effort for decades and decades to come. s caesar chavez is. leyland avenue is next and though the next mayor will take the credit 19th avenue is next and that is long overview. this is what this represents. we told these ideas from all across the country. portland was doing some of this. but we don't like being second place to portland. so, eat your heart out, portland. we took a little bit from bloomberg in new york and that was the ide

in the "marina times." as well as there have been posting on the sf citizen blog. as well on sfgate on their -- i think it is a "inside scoop," their dining blog. moving forward, staff is committed to continuing this community outreach process. we viewed today as an important but preliminary step in moving forward with securing a long- term contract with ortega family enterprises. should the commission a full selection, we would immediately convene community meetings to present the proposal, as well as to receive feedback from the community that could be incorporated during the lease negotiations process. we would meet individually with all interested community associations and stakeholders, including particularly the zero house coalition and sf nature, who have been the most watchful community organizations following this project. then, upon successful negotiation of a lease, they would again convene community meetings and meet with the community leaders to discuss the proposed lease before taking said least to the recreation and parks commission for your approval. next steps -- sh

2009, a conditional permit was denied in the marina. if anything, the status of california street should be even less desirable than the status of lombard street. on july 8, the planning commission approved a conditional use permit for a food express to open. the three members appointed by the board of supervisors voted against this. we are appealing this decision on behalf of many who stand opposed to this chain store. agaiwe sell significant amountsf food and commodity items that are also sold by pet food express. if we have a pet food express six blocks away selling virtually the same products, our sales are going to suffer. given the proximity to my shop, is this necessary, compatible, or desirable? i have already experienced the decimating affect cut food express can have on the retailer. since it opened six blocks from my other place in berkeley, we experienced a decline of sales of 22%. on chu lai 8 we found the planning commissioners overlooked the city planning code. i would like to address those of this time. it states that san francisco is a diverse and distinction neig
